One person was killed and multiple others shot in the early hours of Sunday morning in Minneapolis.
According to Minneapolis Police Department, the fatal shooting happened around 2:23 a.m. Sunday on the 4300 block of S 4th Avenue. Offices arrived at the scene and found a man inside a building, where he was in critical condition having been shot multiple times.
The victim, believed to be in his 30s, was transported to a local hospital where he died from his injuries. Prior to his death, MPD launched a homicide investigation "due to the seriousness of his injuries," MPD said in a release.
The suspect fled from the scene before police arrived. Police believe that the victim and a suspect got into a dispute that escalated into a shooting. The victim's identity will be released at a later stage by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office.
